    November 18, 1776 United States Lottery Ticket

    Continental Congress United States Lottery Ticket Class the Third November 18, 1776 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 45.
    A beautiful example of this really scarce and underappreciated United States Lottery Ticket. Most all that we have seen in our auctions are from this November 18, 1776 resolution. Technically a remainder numbered at left and signed by Campbell, but not indented nor numbered at upper right. Some petty ink erosion has been spotted but is hardly noticeable. The lottery was deemed a way of raising funds that would be less objectionable than further taxes. The lottery was poorly received since the payout ratio was low compared to other lotteries commonplace at the time; thus the public ceased to subscribe. A Class the Third ticket that is as nice as any we have seen.
